I read all of those. Took HOURS.

Anyway, i hope to GOD that no nanos get lose, especially considering nanotechnology is in full go ahead right now!!

To be honest, i don't believe in any destruction of earth or mankind now or in the near future. The greenhouse effect wont boil the earth, it'll be reversed by the plants, UNLESS we cut them all down. Which we are doing. :S There definately wont be an ice age anytime soon, we're warming our planet to much for that.
Tsunami, well, i live in Canada so i don't threat. hehe. But if it does happen it'll be devastating and will effect everyone, weather the wave kills them or not the world will be affected. The gulf of mexico will be thrown out of whack, for starters.

I think, as Chauncy said, it's the suns expansion that is going to kill us. As we already know the sun is expanding at a huge rate. Obviously nothing to worry about at the moment, but give it another lifeage of the earth or something and the sun will have actually gotten so big the earth will be INSIDE the sun. That'll be the end.

2012 End of the Mayan Calendar, the information given does not go as deep as I have researched it. There is a lot of strange facts behind what may happen in 2012.

Sorry but I have to say it.......WHY the hell is there so many topics about the end of the world, I mean we know we have stuffed up the earth, an asteroid can easily wipe us out and we have enough nukes to kill every human in existence as well as deisease which are just getting worse and worse. I know this but why do we keep harping on it. We are alive and we have at at least around 80 years to live and see,smell,touch,eat,feel and do everything we possibly can. I believe we should try as hard as possible to preserve the environment and help every perso that needs assisitance. PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   JUST LIVE AND BE HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!! thumbsup.gif

Sorry about that I just get a little worked up about all this talk about death and destruction. We have lives so embrace them!!!!!!!!!! thumbsup.gif

Really? I've only seen two.

I realise the subject is a bit morbid and we should all live our lives to the full and all that, but I think it's a very important issue.

I mean if there's one subject that affects everyone then it's the end of the world, and the way things are going there's an outside chance our generation could be the one to witness it...

...but lets hope not eh!

Here is an article relating to an astronomer (calls himself "aussie bloke")** that claims the end of the world as we know it will come at the end of June 2004*.

END OF THE WORLD?

Has anyone else read or heard of this?
Aside from the reference to Grover's Mill, NJ (from Orson Wells' War of the Worlds) does anyone know if this is another hoax or does science back this up?

I found it pretty frightening.

I will admit, after checking with some friends who are still in the navy, a lot of ships are out right now.


Still, i have serious trouble believing theories like this.  While the the man making these predictions claims to be Dr. Gartell, without proof of his identity, i can't bring myself to believe this.


After spending the last 6 hours researching Gartell, i can honestly say : if this guy is indeed Gartell....   crying.gif

After doing some research (on the Aussie Bloke story) I found that some forums carring the posts (godlikeproductions, ATS...etc.) had ruled it as a hoax.  Looks like this is the clincher, I guess just a very elaborate one to gain the publics reaction.  
AUSSIE BLOKE

What scared me were the coincidences that went with the story such as the navy exercises, Venus, prophecies, and the fact that a meteorite could slam into earth at any given time.  I also believe that the government would keep it away from the public until the last minute.  Unless they could prove beyond a doubt that it was going to hit us, why create mass hysteria early, especially if we later found a way to divert the object?

I do not agree with the hoax, but at the same time it really made think and start to research the subject.  Hey, I know more about astronomy now.

....and it seems as he (Dr .Gartrel), at least the name, is the real deal and can be backed up.  Maybe someone is using his good label to spread this horrific news or he is throwing himself out there with his beliefs.  From some of the things I have read it has been 20 to 25 years in which he has been trying to talk.

In earlier posts he talks about jumping from forum to forum because he kept getting shut down (of course he did not name them), if his word is so valuable and true then why aren't they closing the door to all these sites that are now hosting his/they're words?

This is from one of "Aussie Bloke's" posts:

June 8-9 Dust Cloud begins to reach the Earth and darkening of the skies.
June 18-20 1st impact
June 24-25 2nd impact
June 27-28 3rd impact of the "anomaly"

Note - June 8th is also the day Venus crosses the sun, real big in Mayan history.

      This month (June) three comets heading toward Earth might hit.  With one we might be able to survive, but with two or three the results would be a catastrophe.  They are predicted to hit on the 18-20.  I, personally, do not believe this because I heard it word of mouth.


     I'm new by the way and I really enjoy this site.  I hope to continue to post.(While I can  tongue.gif  )

Here's a link that will show you all known visible comets.
http://www.maa.agleia.de/Comet/comet.html

Here you will find how comets are found and where most of the ones we know of come from. http://library.thinkquest.org/18188/englis...s.htm?tqskip1=1

Here's a link to National Geographic that discusses any potential harm to Earth from comets. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/20...128_comets.html

Where do you get this info from? Do you have any links to corroborate this story?

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.
